        Mr. Churchill on the Peers by Winston S. Churchill, first edition only printing, bound in Pamphlets & Leaflets for 1910, Being the Publications for the Year of the Liberal Publication Department

      First edition, only printing. In 1910 Winston Churchill was a young lion of the Liberal Party, vexing the British establishment and helping Lloyd George lay the foundations of the modern welfare state. Here is the original 1910 leaflet publishing Churchill's 14 November letter stating vehement opposition to the veto power of the House of Lords. This leaflet captures the young radical Churchill in full flower. "Was ever inequality more scandalous? Was ever injustice more glaring? All classes are to have votes; but only Tory votes are to count. WE CAN SUBMIT NO LONGER TO THIS USAGE. THIS IS OUR LAND AS MUCH AS IT IS THEIRS." The leaflet is two pages, published by the Liberal Publications Department as Leaflet No. 2358 on 18 November 1910. It is bound in a volume containing Liberal Party speeches and pamphlets for the year 1910. The binding is black leather pebble grain spine over green ribbed buckram covers, the book measures 8.25 inches tall by 5.5 inches wide by 1 inch thick. It contains a table of contents indexing by subject the numerous bound pamphlets and leaflets. The book is a fascinating piece of history, containing pamphlets and leaflets of various shapes and sizes, many of which are folded in and, we imagine, are unlikely to now be found anywhere else given their fragility and ephemeral nature. Condition of the bound volume is very good+. The leather spine shows very little wear, retains bright gilt, and the leather shows no drying or cracking. The green cloth top board is clean and bright with virtually no wear. The rear board is also clean and bright overall, but with some scuffing along the fore edge. The contents, including the Churchill speech pamphlet, are in excellent condition. The binding is tight, the pages are exceptionally bright and clean, and the top edge retains bright gilt. No spotting and no inscriptions - just what looks to be some minor bookseller notation in pencil on the pastedown. A rare and exciting find for collectors. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A33.1, Woods A18.

        A new modification of the cloud method of determining the elementary electrical charge and the most probable value of that Charge [ Millikan's Balanced-Droplet Experiment - Foundation for Oil Drop Experiment ]

      London: Taylor and Francis, 1910. First Edition. Hard Cover. Near Fine. viii, [1]-924 pages plus 13 folding plates bound in rear. 8vo. Attractively bound in ¾ leather over marbled boards. Marbled endpapers and page edges. A few small blemishes to the leather, bright and clean internally. Pages 209-228 contain the article "A new modification of the cloud method of determining the elementary electrical charge and the most probable value of that Charge," a key work in physics and electricity. Often falsely cited as containing "Millikan's Oil Drop Experiment", this article documents Millikan's "balanced-droplet" experiment which predates his famous oil drop experiment. This paper is the first to reproducably and accurately show the unitary nature of electrical charge (which gives us an accurate measurement of the charge of an electron for the first time). Experimental methods previous to his work created wildly differing measurements during repeated attempts. The balanced droplet method required the creation and use of water drops which were given an electrical charge, and then studied as they were influenced by a known magnetic field. The paper is fundamentally important. Millikan in his autobiography notes that this paper established the "first definite, sharp, unambigous proof that electricity was definitely unitary in structure and that it only appeared in exact multiples of that unit..." effectively allowing the measurement of the electrical charge. Later work (including his oil drop experiment) refined the experimental measurement techniques and the value of the charge of an electron. Millikan was awarded the Nobel Prize for Physics in 1923 "for his work on the elementary charge of electricity and on the photoelectric effect". Millikan showed that the charge was "always an integral multiple of an irreproducible value." He arrived at a value for e in 1909 that he considered accurate to within 2 percent. "This result provided the most persuasive evidence yet that electrons were fundamental particles of identical charge and mass". In 1913 he published the value for the electronic charge 4.774 +/- .009 x 10 (-10) e.s.u. "which would serve the world of science for a generation" " (see DSB 9/10 pp 395-396). IN The London, Edinburgh, and Dublin Philosophical Magazine, Volume XIX, Sixth Series, February 1910, pp 209-228. A fine addition to any physics, Nobel Prize, or science collection! Many important discoveries first appeared in these journals with monographs appearing much later. Journal appearances are hence the true first editions of many important discoveries in science and technology. We have many other journal firsts available, please inquire.

ART OF THIS CENTURY: OBJECTS - DRAWINGS - PHOTOGRAPHS - PAINTINGS - SCULPTURE - COLLAGE 1910 TO 1942 - AN EXTRAORDINARY ASSOCIATION COPY . Signed Association Copy from the Author. New York: Art of This Century & Art Aid Corporation, 1942. First Edition 1/2500. 4to. Decorated Cloth Over Boards. Exhibition Catalog. Near Fine./No Jacket - As Issued. 160pp, profusely illustrated in b&w. In a protective clear acetate dustwrapper. Cover design by Max Ernst. Art of this Century was heiress and prolific contemporary art collector Peggy Guggenheim's now legendary forward-thinking New York gallery that operated from 1942 until 1947. In conjunction with its first exhibition, Guggenheim edited and published this prescient hardbound book also titled "Art of this Century" that featured a cover by her then-husband Max Ernst, original texts by Andre Breton, Jean Arp and Piet Mondrian, and works by the leading proponents of the Russian Avant-Garde, Cubism, Futurism Dada, De Stijl, Surrealism, Dynaton, and Abstraction. The artists allotted one or more reproductions - frequently with their own statements - are Constantin Brancusi, Pablo Picasso, Wassily Kandinsky, Marc Chagall, Paul Klee, Giorgio De Chirico, Piet Mondrian, Marcel Duchamp, Francis Picabia, Georges Braque, Raymond Duchamp-Villon, Robert Delaunay, Fernand Leger, Juan Gris, Alexander Archipenko, Albert Gleizes, Louis Marcoussis, Henri Laurens, Jacques Lipchitz, Jacques Villon, Amedee Ozenfant, Giacomo Balla, Gino Severini, Kasimir Malevich, El Lissitzky, Theo Van Doesburg, Georges Vantongerloo, Antoine Pevsner, Naum Gabo, Cesar Domela-Nieuwenhuis, Ben Nicholson, Vordemberge-Gildewart, Jean Helion, Alexander Calder, John Ferren, John Tunnard, Charles Howard, Jean (Hans) Arp, Max Ernst, Man Ray, Kurt Schwitters, Andre Masson, Joan Miro, Yves Tanguy, Rene Magritte. Andre Breton, Alberto Giacometti, Salvador Dali, Lawrence Vail, Henry Moore, Victor Brauner, Wolfgang Paalen, Oscar Dominguez, Leonor Fini, Paul Delvaux, Leonora Carrington, Roberto Sebastian Matta Echaurren, and Morris Hirschfield. A bright yellow, remarkably well-preserved copy of this uncommon document bearing the BOLDLY SIGNED PRESENTATION "To mrs Kate Steinitz with many thanks / Peggy Guggenheim / aug. 6. 1942" in black fountain pen on the half title page in the year of publication showing some light soiling and age-toning, mild fraying to the spine ends, and a few ghosts from removed adhesive labels on the inside covers. The front free endpaper features the embossed ownership label of the noted late Los Angeles-based artist, educator, and Surrealist collector Emerson Woelffer. Steinitz was a Hanover-based artist and journalist during the twenties who became Kurt Schwitters' close friend, collaborator, publisher and eventually his biographer. She was a serious collector of his art who later acted as Schwitters' agent both before and after his death. In 1935 she emigrated to New York, where she curated the "New Americans" exhibition at the 1939 World's Fair. Kate Steinitz is credited in the acknowledgements of "Art of This Century" with supplying some of its reproduced photographs, and is also likely the source of the three exhibited Schwitters works cited in the book. She moved to Los Angeles in 1945 to oversee the Elmer Belt library of Vinciana, which she did until her death in 1975. Her personal library was then acquired by noted local antiquarian dealer Jake Zeitlin, who supplied many rare books and prints to Woelffer - from whose library we obtained this significant tome directly.

        THE LIFE OF BENJAMIN DISRAELI, EARL OF BEACONSFIELD

      London: John Murray, 1910. FIRST EDITION. Hardcover. 216 x 140 mm (8 1/2 x 5 1/2"). Six volumes. FIRST EDITION. EXTREMELY APPEALING CONTEMPORARY DARK BLUE THREE-QUARTER MOROCCO, GILT, raised bands, spines attractively gilt in double-ruled compartments with intricate arabesque cornerpieces, marbled sides and endpapers, top edges gilt. With 56 portraits, six political cartoons, and nine illustrations of important places in the life of Disraeli. Trivial soiling to two paper sides, leaves slightly browned at edges because of inexpensive paper, one leaf with minor printing imperfection, but AN ESPECIALLY PLEASING SET, THE DECORATIVE BINDINGS VERY LUSTROUS AND WITH VIRTUALLY NO WEAR, and the text quite clean and fresh. British prime minister, statesman, and father of the modern Conservative party, Benjamin Disraeli (1804-81) was a towering figure in 19th century Britain whose influence is difficult to overstate. Our authors had the advantage of free access to his papers and correspondence, and have carefully documented and analyzed his public life and political theories in the six substantial volumes that make up this work. Our set is given special mention by DNB, which states that "the interpretation of [Disraeli] as a man of the people, who had the insight to appreciate the merits of a policy of imperial consolidation and social reform, became widely held by Conservatives in the 1890s. It was underpinned by the conclusion to the six-volume biography of him begun by W. F. Monypenny and finished after Monypenny's death by G. E. Buckle in 1920. (However, buried in the rest of the work is a great deal of material about other aspects of Disraeli's ideas. It remains the only biography to treat those ideas with anything like the importance they deserve, in a conscious effort to answer Liberal and other criticisms of his lack of convictions.)" The prime minister's private life, however, "was sanitized by Monypenny and Buckle (in whose biography there is not even any coherent reference to [his reputed mistress] Henrietta Sykes)." The present set's appearance is little changed from its original condition, and it would make a handsome addition to any library. Because the work was issued over an 11-year period, there are more incomplete than complete sets in the marketplace, and there appears to be no six-volume set of the first editions currently being offered in decorative bindings, let alone any as attractive and well preserved as ours (ABPC lists one comparable set since 1975).
